Will miss Aunt Edna, so wonderful growing up to have such a fun and interesting aunt. Judy and I loved visiting her when she was newly married to Uncle Reid and lived on First St.
Rest in peace.

If you had the idea of a great teacher, Mrs. Love was it. She was tough, but always fair and took the time to help us understand. I remember the math classes, but what I remember most was right before the bell would ring, Mrs.Love would take the time to give us some life lessons. She would make us laugh, but think too. They broke the mold when Mrs. Love was made. Rest in peace, and thank you.

A small footnote, there was a question at the bottom of this to verify I was a real person.. it was of course a math question.
